    1.8 coupe problem

    Having few issues with the coupe, fires up quickly but coughs and splutters like its on choke, when i try to pull away its very hesitant through the gears and jerky!
    Over the last few weeks ive replaced a few sensors and parts being-

    2x coilpacks
    afm
    camshaft sensor
    crank sensor
    knock sensor
    fuel filter
    new throttle body
    egr still blanked
    spark plugs
    oil flushed and renewed

    Any helps most appreciated on this as its doing my head in, and with above and todate no eml lights have been illuminated

    Just when it's cold? I'd try a new coolant temp sensor if so, the one with the plastic plug on it, not the simple spade terminal one.

    Nope runs even worse when warm, third gear foot down and takes ages before kicking in and building up any speed!..

    Nope its the x18xe1 model so only one pre cat, 2000 model.

    Problem fixed and ecu was reflashed and software back uploaded, problems was coilpack,crank sensor,afm and a knock sensor, because the coupe was in safe mode putting in the parts made no difference as the ecu didnt register them, but all fixed now and running as good as the day i got it chipped!..

    Cheers for the help though buddy, most appreciated!
